Pre-k and Kindergarten Reading List

Reading is a critical skill for success in school and in life. Let’s create an easy to learn environment with high quality children’s age appropriate books, and help our children build a good reading habit!

Kindergarten children should know about letters, words, and sounds. They can apply this knowledge to read simple sentences. Kindergarten children also can identify the basic facts and ideas in what they have read, heard, or viewed by using comprehension strategies (e.g., generating and responding to questions, com­paring new information to what is already known).
